UCL Enterprise Symposium

FLARRE Consortium and the 3I Domain

The workshop is organised and hosted by the 3I Domain and the FLARRE Consortium and provides an opportunity to bring together PIs, PDRAs, Junior Investigators and PhD Students across UCL with interests in inflammation, tissue remodelling/scarring and fibrosis. The meeting aims to highlight the breadth and depth of innovative research in these areas, leading to the development of a UCL cluster of expertise and excellence in biomedical research, which can be further translated into commercial enterprise.

The workshop is organised into short, 10-minute presentations under four themes:

- Inflammation and Autoimmunity

- Controversies in Tissue Repair and Regeneration: Cell Interactions in Model Systems

- Tissue Remodelling and Fibrosis

- Current and Future Technologies and Partnership

 

All welcome to attend
